COMMERCE STREET CAPITAL CAMPAIGN
Phase I is done, and we have moved our Headquarters from Apple Avenue to 1823 Commerce Street, Muskegon (off Laketon Avenue, about 1/2 mile east of Seaway Drive). Contact us at 231-728-2831.
WMT's Substance Abuse Outpatient Clinic and Administration and Business/Finance staff have moved out of our Apple Avenue location. Additional staff (the Housing Navigation Center) will move in the next few months and the staff and participants in the Transitional Living Center for Women will follow a few months later, when Phases II and III of this renovation project are complete.
The Commerce Street building covers 32,000 square feet, and will bring efficiencies in costs and operations to West Michigan Therapy. Selected as one of two 2011 Day of Caring sites by United Way of the Lakeshore, 400 hundred volunteers descended on the building and grounds on September 9, 2011 and got the cosmetic improvements underway. The building had been vacant and neglected for several years. Having suffered water damage during these years, many walls had to have the dry wall removed from the baseboard and up about two feet. The Day of Caring volunteers replaced the insulation and dry wall in many rooms, painted the exterior and many of the Phase I rooms, ripped up old carpet, demolished more walls, cleaned up a large parking lot and placed new trees, shrubs and plants in two beds. This was a huge accomplishment, and we are grateful for the hard work performed by these willing men, women, and youth.
A project this large reqiuries a lot of assistance, and we are curently seeking financial assistance to complete the necessary cosmetic and mechanical improvements.

In addition, sponsorships /marketing opportunities are available to individuals and organizations who would like to help us complete Phases II and III.
